    Summary

    When a forgotten Shakespeare collection gets a bit confused about its plot lines, Hamlet and Horatio find themselves thrown into other stories and have to muddle their way through these new plots and the characters they're supposed to play. Soon joined by Juliet, this lost trio works their way through multiple plays and roles as they try to get back to Denmark and track down the misplaced Romeo.

    But Hamlet's still haunted mentally, Horatio's still carrying some buried feelings, and Juliet is willing to do anything to get back to her husband. Together, they'll changes the Shakespeare canon (at least in this one printing) forever.

    A humorous exploration from an English professor who wanted a chance to redeem Hamlet (her beloved emo dumpster goblin) and see just what Shakespeare's characters could do when faced with the wrong stories.

    Summary

    What if Hamlet falls in love with his uncle?

    An extended whirlwind romance between a young prince and the archnemesis of his clan. After the storm, a dance between two dragons ensues.

    "Sylvester, or Sevy as everyone seems to call him, is always lively and vivacious, he is able to retain a playful attitude even at the hardest of times.

    He can add colours to the chameleon, yet still finds time to smuggle a mouthful of lemony Turkish Delights at the same time".

    There’s love, there’s war, there's bad grammar and dragon sex, there you have it.

    Summary

    Two Households, both alike in dignity,
    In fair Naboo where we lay our scene,
    From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
    Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.

    From forth the fatal loins of these two foes,
    A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life,
    Who’s misadventur’d piteous overthrows,
    Doth with their death, bury their parent’s strife.

    The fearful passage of their death-mark’d love,
    And the continuance of their parents rage,
    Which, but their children’s end, naught could remove.
    Is now the 26 chapters’ traffic of your device;

    The which, if you with patient eyes attend,
    What here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend.

    //ORrRrRrRrrrrr//

    I rewrote Romeo & Juliet in a language that’s easily comprehensible in today’s day and age. Rey and Ben portray our star crossed lovers in this recreation because I can’t contain my own love for both of these tragedies any longer. There will be historical context, character analysis’ and anything else I’ve learnt about the play since anotating it.

    Read the tags dudes and enjoy!!

Macbeth's cousin, Thorfinn, has taken it upon himself to flirt with absolutely everyone except the man who actually has a crush on him; Siward. Get ready lads cause it's about to get... bad.

    Disclaimer: I have never seen Temptation Island I just thought the premise was hilarious and super fic-worthy.

    Summary

    I'm back with more Shakespeare shenanigans, this time it's Jaime/Brienne in a modern setting with Shakespeare's "Measure for Measure" as a guide.

    This play is real weird. It's a comedy (in name only) about moral rigidity and how fundamentalism leads to corruption. And it's open ended too. My Shakespeare prof said that is Shakespeare getting fed up with the rules of comedy and pushing back on the form, and it was the last comedy he wrote too.

    Here's the rough outline: The Duke has left town, and put Angelo in charge. Angelo has arrested Claudio and charged him with fornication because he and his wife have not completed all the technical requirements of marriage and she is now pregnant.

    Claudio's sister, Isabella, a novice nun, pleads with Angelo to let her brother go, and Angelo tells her that if she'll surrender her virginity to him, he'll let Claudio go.

    Enjoy!

    Summary

    Two households, both alike in dignity...wait no.

    My lord, if they were but a week married, they would talk themselves mad...not that either.

    Come hither, spirit: Set Caliban and his companions free; Untie the spell...getting closer.

    Summary

    “The plan is: we’re gonna put on a play. Now, I see some doubtful faces–” Louis looked around and found zero doubtful faces. Liam looked intrigued, Zayn looked bored, and Harry looked scarily blank. “But this is what’s happening. We’re gonna do some fucking acting, we’re gonna perform our hearts out, and we’re not going to think about anything else. The past, the future; none of it. All we’re going to think about is... “ Niall trailed off, eyeing the bookshelf to his left. He closed his eyes and reached a hand out towards it, running his fingers over the covers before pulling a book out at random. “William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.”

    AU: Five assholes stuck in a bunker put on a play.
